"Angel's Doorway" as written by and Suzanne Vega....
Angel comes home
His clothes in a cloud
Of the dust and the dirt and destruction
She waits inside
She knows he's arrived
She feels this with no introduction

[Chorus:]
At angel's door
You have to leave it on the floor
Don't bring it in (Don't bring it in)
He can't show
What she doesn't want to know
Those things he's seen

She knows the smell
Of that life he can't tell
Of the fires and the flesh and confusion
Inside his brain
It's never the same
Though he tries to maintain the illusion

[Chorus]

Angel comes home
His clothes in a cloud
Of the dust and the dirt and destruction

    This song is about Suzanne Vega's brother-in-law, who was a cop at Ground Zero on 9/11.

    Like all of her songs, Angel's Doorway is nothing short of amazing.
